    Congratulations on introducing Christina to Star Wars! I speak from experience when I say that it is an objective fact that Nerd Love is Best Love. One of the things that caused my wife to fall in love with me was a bumper sticker on my truck that read, “Everything I know I learned by killing smart people and eating their brains”. And in true Aristotelian fashion, our relationship formed a virtuous feedback loop of mutual flourishing (I introduced her to Babylon Five and Doctor Who, and she introduced me to the collected works of Joss Whedon).

    Do not be too quick to condemn the University of California, San Diego. Larry Squire may be at UCSD, but so is V.S. Ramachandran.
